Blue paint
This was a good product, I liked first that it didn’t have a strong odor, I did smell it but it wasn’t strong in any way. Applying it was very easy, with one coat it looked really good but with two coats it came out very uniform and still covered a pretty good sized area I would say 8’x35’ with ease. I don’t like dark rooms so I usually only paint one wall in each room with a dark color just to give them some color but still doesn’t feel like a cave.

Nice Color
Got this to sample in my laundry area, and it looks great. This paint looks to be very durable and capable of lasting for a very long time. Easy to apply use a brush, roller or pad, you can spry it on too. It has low VOC so you won't need extreme ventilation. Easy to clean up use soap and water. Easy to pour with the spout on the can. One of the best paints that you can get.

High quality, great color
Paint goes on very smooth and even, covers great in one coat, I am using 2 coats since going over a lighter color and I want the best full color possible from this paint. Use a high quality brush and roller. The can has a unique screw on lid and a pour spout that attaches to it as well to avoid the usual mess on the rim of the can. The satin finish makes the blue look even deeper. I feel this paint is high quality and should perform well in high traffic areas.

One coat for real!
Whenever I can I try out new products in my shop before I use it in my house. This paint was tried out on one of my shop work benches. This was home built and the wood was totally untreated. So this was a real test for a one coat paint. It passed with flying colors. Not only did it cover the wood in one coat, but it went on very smooth and evenly. Minimal dripping. Cleaned up well with just a little soap and water. Very happy with this paint and I look forward to using it again.

Did not cover evenly no matter what I tried.
I used the Behr Marquee Matte Compass Blue, did not cover in one coat and was uneven no matter what. I contacted Behr after buying two gallons and they did send me an additional gallon to finish the room which is great but it’s so unfortunate the paint is just not good because the color is beautiful. I painted 4 other rooms with all different paints, finishes and colors and this was the only one that came out bad. There are streaks and lines all over every wall. I tried sanding the walls and starting over and changed the rollers I used as well, nothing helped and I am just going to accept this until I have the energy to start over...again.

Hi AC, thank you for your review, and I am sorry to hear you continued to get an uneven finish with just this color. When you do fix the issue, make sure to maintain a wet edge and work in small sections. If you still need help with your project, please don't hesitate to reach out to us again; we'd be more than happy to help. -Edith Behr

    Great coverage
    This is a really great product that has fantastic coverage, even on the first coat. Covers even dark colors with one coat. I usually do two coats to give an even greater finished product. Looks great when dry and washes extremely well. It’s well worth the extra money!

      Bubbled and peeled under painters tape
      This stuff bubbled and peeled under painters tape. It costs too much to peel off of what it's painted onto.

      Response from BehrSep 8, 2021
      Hello NoThanks, thank you for your review. I’m so sorry the paint bubbled and peeled under the tape. I recommend letting the paint dry for at least 24 hours, removing any loose coating, wiping off the sanding dust, then touching up with paint. If the area needs to be taped over again, I recommend allowing the fresh paint to dry for at least 24 hours before applying low tack painter’s tape to it. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance. Our team is happy to help you! -Joni Behr
